Lionsgate is involved in the upcoming remake of The Evil Dead and have picked up the rights to Evil Dead II. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film's release, a new Blu-ray anniversary edition is in the works and we have release information and cover art.

"Ash, the sole survivor of The Evil Dead, returns to the same cabin in the woods and again unleashes the forces of the dead. With his girlfriend possessed by demons and his body parts runnning amok, Ash is forced to single-handedly battle the legions of the damned as the most lethal — and groovy — hero in horror movie history! Welcome to Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, director Sam Raimi's infamous sequel to The Evil Dead and outrageous prequel to Army of Darkness!"

This isn't just going to be a repackaging of the previous Anchor Bay release. Not only will we get a brand new (and improved) HD transfer of the film, but new special features:

-All-new audio commentary with cast/crew
-All-new Swallowed Souls: The Making of Evil Dead II documentary
-All-new Road to Wadesboro: The Location of Evil Dead II featurette
-All-new Cabin Fever: Behind the Scenes of Evil Dead II" featurette
-All-new Evil Dead II interactive archive, featuring production stills, marketing materials, production stills, and early effects tests
-Vintage featurettes and behind-the-scenes footage
-TV spots and trailers

Sadly, we'll have to wait until after Halloween to get our hand on this, as it won't be released until November 15th. The good news is that this is being offered for the extremely low pre-order price of $10.49 at Amazon.com .
